A new-look summer drama season at Sheringham Little Theatre proved to be a box office success.

The venue switched the format of its five-play repertory season this year.

Instead of stretching over 10 weeks, with shows making two appearances, plays were staged just once in a more concentrated six week season.

Theatre director Debbie Thompson said: “It has been a huge success. We played to 84pc-full houses, matching an ambitious target.

“Audiences have given us positive feedback about the variety of plays.”

The aim is to repeat the format next year, when the theatre marks 55 years of staging summer drama. It is one of the last outposts of the traditional “rep”.

Mrs Thompson said they were looking to stage “five of the best” most popular shows from the past.
